Romain Saiss claims that the importance of Wolverhampton Wanderers teammate Willy Boly has been shown following his return to the side.
Boly missed a few months of the season with an ankle injury, but made his comeback at the beginning of February and the team’s results have been impressive.
The 29-year-old is a powerhouse defender that starts when he’s available and is so comfortable playing in the back three system that manager Nuno Espirito Santo prefers.
He’s played eight games across all competitions since his February return and the team have kept an eye-catching five clean sheets in that time.
Saiss, who slots in as either a defender or midfielder for Wolves, has raved about the impact of Boly.
“We are happy for him (Boly), first to be back and then for the team because he is really important,” Saiss said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“It’s good to have Boly back because we have more opportunity now with this player, so it’s a good thing for the team.”
After helping Wolves earn promotion from the Championship during the 2017/18 season during a loan spell, the West Midlands club signed him on a permanent basis for £10million (Express and Star).
The Frenchman has been a colossus defender during his time in the Premier League and is a big part of the season why Molineux has European football, which has unfortunately been postponed at the moment by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
His £10million transfer fee has turned out to be a total bargain for Wolves and supporters will hope to see him back in action soon, with domestic football suspended at least until the beginning of April.
